Is depression a physical problem or a spiritual problem? Today on Frances and Friends, Sister Swaggart and panel discuss
depression, as an emailer asks if depression is a sin. Brother Smith
says there are some physical problems that can cause depression like a thyroid issue. He recommends people get a physical to see if there is a physical cause behind their depression. Despite a physical reason, however, Brother Smith says we should always look to the Spiritual aspect so the Holy Spirit can generate hope in our heart, mind and Spirit so God can heal the problem. Brother Nations says the devil will use anything to creep in and steal a person¹s joy and peace. Don¹t let your feelings stop you from doing what God has been telling you to do. In 1 Corinthians 2:14, Brother Smith shares how the Bible leads the sinner to salvation; but until they believe, they can¹t fully understand what the Bible says about living for God. Therefore, the majority of the Bible is written for the believer to know how to live this life after salvation. The panel also addresses questions about the Great Tribulation, which is for Israel to realize they rejected the true Messiah, and need to come back to God; this will occur after the Rapture of believers.
